Superstar Rajinikanth is back on Zee Cinema with super hit ‘Lingaa’
Mumbai: It’s going to be an action packed Sunday as Zee Cinema, the world’s biggest theatre for Hindi movies, brings to its viewers superstar Rajinikanth’s ultimate blockbuster movie ‘Lingaa’ on 30th August, 9 PM. Lingaa also marks the debut of Sonakshi Sinha in the South and it was Rajinikanth’s first ever birthday release.
The film begins with the murder of a government official inspecting a dam, and then the action cuts to Lingaa (Rajinikanth), a small-time criminal, who is in prison with his cohorts (Santhanam, Karunakaran and co). Lakshmi (Anushka), a TV reporter, helps him to get out on bail to return to his village, Solaiyur and re-open the temple that his grandfather, Raja Lingeswaran (Rajinikanth), had built. At first, Lingaa refuses because he is angry at his ancestor as he left his father to die penniless by donating his wealth to the masses.
However, he ends up going to Solaiyur when he learns of his grandfather’s sacrifice. Lingeswaran had resigned his job as a collector when he realized that the British will not let him build the dam that will benefit the people of Solaiyur. Being an extremely wealthy Maharaja, who has studied civil engineering in Oxford, he used his own money to fund the project and planned the construction himself, rallying the people of the village to his cause.
However, an egotistical British collector used every trick in the book — money, caste, and power- to thwart him at every step. Lingeswaran had given his entire wealth to the collector for the sake of completing the dam. Years later, Naga Bhushan (Jagapathi Babu), a corrupt MP is trying to weaken the dam’s structure for a kickback, and Lingaa returns to the village to protect his grandfather’s legacy.
Will Raja Lingeswaran’s descendant Lingaa be able to open the Shiva temple?
